Progressive equality rhetoric masks disdain for ‘ordinary’ Americans

Progressive equality rhetoric masks disdain for ‘ordinary’ Americans

Progressives have a new Armageddon, namely income inequality, and, yes, there are some things to be worried about, not least of all what the progressives themselves will do about it. In the end, you see, many are not really egalitarian at all. They are instead condescending, disdainful, neo-aristocrats who think the ordinary Joe and Jane cannot tie their own shoes […]

Regulatory bullying in Dodd-Frank’s life insurance provision

Regulatory bullying in Dodd-Frank’s life insurance provision

Members of both parties in Congress are wise to this stupidity and just maybe, conceivably, will do some little something about it, though that would be a meager start to what is really needed.

Obamacare’s ideological defenders torture the truth

Obamacare’s ideological defenders torture the truth

The intellectual pretenses of the left too often evaporate into nothingness when the evidential heat is turned up. A prime example of the moment is a health-care act designed to fit the ideological supposition that government knows better on anything and everything than individual citizens and should intervene massively — which is to say recklessly — when there are problems.

Will entrepreneurship save the Washington Post (and other American newspapers)?

Will entrepreneurship save the Washington Post (and other American newspapers)?

The most pathetic suggestion for saving American newspapers from the trash heap was the one that said government should step in, letting taxpayers compensate for revenues fleeing to the Internet.

Obama scandals piling up

Obama scandals piling up

Please, please, there’s no reason to impeach President Barack Obama and it is overreach to say we’re getting Watergate all over again. But the scandals are indeed piling up on each other, or, to use another metaphor, it’s not just raining. It’s pouring. And the message to the nation is to take cover.
